Visualize Your Shift Schedule

If your schedule varies from week to week, keeping track of your working days can be a chore, and it’s often difficult to quickly figure out when you’ll be on-duty weeks or months in the future.

Scheduler to the rescue!  Designed for public-service employees such as police officers, firefighters, and health-care workers — anyone who works an unusual but predictable schedule — Scheduler always shows your schedule for the next five years from “today.”  Common shift schedules are built-in, such as the “Berkeley” (a.k.a. “California”), “48-96” and “Dupont,” but you can easily change them or create any other repeating pattern covering any number of days.  See the screenshots for some examples.  And there’s a “Doofus” mode for showing irregular, unpredictable schedules.

If your spouse/partner also works a shift schedule, even if entirely different pattern from yours, you can see that rotation appear on calendar, too.  This will help you organize family activities such as vacations and day-care.
